UPDATE: Presteve Theatre Company to Help Offset Medical Bills of Local Actress
Presteve Theatre Company founders Steve Paulding and Preston Lee Britton will donate 50% of their final weekend ticket sales of their hit comedy The Divine Sister to help offset medical bills of local actress Kendra Jacobs.
Jacobs, a local actress, was diagnosed in November with Acute Myeloid leukemia and after beating the disease this spring, still faces over $250,000 in uncovered medical bills. Both Presteve founders Paulding and Britton co-starred with Jacobs in Vintage's A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum last summer. "Preston and I absolutely love Kendra, and we were privileged to work with her on Forum," Paulding said. "She's such a talented and kind person, and she'sso dedicated to her passion of theatre! Preston and I have always wanted to give her a helping hand, and now that we have the means to do so, we can."
The Divine Sister is an outrageous comic homage to nearly every Hollywood film involving nuns. Evoking such films as The Song of Bernadette, The Bells of St. Mary's, The Singing Nun, and Agnes of God, The Divine Sister tells the story of St. Veronica's indomitable Mother Superior who is determined to build a new school for her Pittsburgh convent.
Final performances of The Divine Sister are May 27 - May29 @ 7:30 p.m. at Emerson School McGlone Center, (3rdFloor) 14th and Ogden St. in Denver. Tickets are available by calling 720-838-5176 or online at www.prestevetheatrecompany.com.
